Hi

I am having an issue with the following DAX which I just can't seem to get working properly

Code:
Net Expenditure:=VAR CutOff =
    MAX ( 'Calendar'[FiscalYear] ) - 2
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( SupplierNetExpenditure[NET_AMOUNT] ),
        FILTER ( 'Calendar', 'Calendar'[FiscalYear] > CutOff )
    )

It is not filtering the data for FiscalYear, it is returning all results, If I replace the CutOff variable to 2018, I get the expected results. If I create a measure using the variable definition (MAX ( 'Calendar'[FiscalYear] ) - 2) it returns 2018, which is what I expect.

My instinct is telling me i am having a battle with filter context, but i am not sure what else to try!

Any advice will be greatly received.

Regards

Dave

what you are trying to do is modify the filter context. As a general rule, you should remove filters first, then reapply the filters you need.
try this

Code:
Net Expenditure:=VAR CutOff =
MAX ( 'Calendar'[FiscalYear] ) - 2
RETURN
CALCULATE (
SUM ( SupplierNetExpenditure[NET_AMOUNT] ),
FILTER (ALL( 'Calendar'), 'Calendar'[FiscalYear] > CutOff )
)

Hi Matt

Thanks for your speedy response, unfortunately I tried that previously and it returns the grand total for each year to my pivot (Sort of!)

My objective is to only return monthly results for this fiscal year and the previous year (for comparatives, I am not interested in anything older for this specific Pivot, however I need to keep the source data for other aspects and therefore can not filter out at source).
